Rwanda low season gorilla permits were initiated in 2017 after there was an increase in the price of the normal Rwanda gorilla permits from USD750.00 to USD1500.00. The increment was meat to position Rwanda as a luxury tourist destination in Africa. Indeed Rwanda has embarked on its ambiguous project by attracting investor to construct luxury lodges and conference centers. Rwanda believes that with these luxury lodges and the new Airport yet to be contributed and also the influence of the presence of Rwanda air, it will be possible to attract first class and luxury oriented clients to this country of a thousand hills. In order to attract more tourist to trek Rwanda gorillas in the Volcanoes National Park, as Rwanda increased the price of the normal gorilla permits, it also announced a 30% discount for the same making it USD1050 per person per trek in months of May and November.
It should be noted that discounted gorilla permits started in Uganda where low season gorilla permits where issued at only USD450 per person per trek but following developments in Rwanda, Uganda had to scrap off this offer to maintain the price at USD600.00 for all calendar months. Much as Rwanda is offering these discounted or low season gorilla permits, they still have strings attached or conditions that one must satisfy before benefiting from them. That said and done, still the price for Rwanda discounted gorilla permits at USD1050 cannot match the normal gorilla permit price in Uganda and Congo which is at USD600 and USD400 respectively. Its for this reason that many Rwanda tour operaters have opted to sell Uganda gorillas by crossing the boarder at Chanika and Katuna to trek gorillas in Uganda or also trekking Congo mountain gorillas in the Virunga National Park at only USD400.00 per person per trek in high season and USD200.00 per person per trek in low season.
